Sprint’s announcement that it was going to charge customers $30 per month to turn their EVO 4G into a Wi-Fi hotspot was met with a lot of criticism, but as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. A weekend update made the popular android-wifi-tether app now allows EVO owners to tether over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to your heart’s content. To use the app you’ll first need to root your EVO, but thanks to unrevoked, anyone can root their EVO in a matter of seconds. After you’ve obtained root access, simply download 2.0.2.pre14 and up. One major drawback of the app is that it does not include support for WPA/WAP2 encryption, but so long as you’re willing to place your trust in WEP you’re good to go. That is provided your EVOs Wi-Fi isn’t on the fritz.
